Combine your favorite games to make one great game!

Posted on 8/14/2013 by with 6 comments


After a night of gaming, I got to thinking, and yes I know thinking normally gets me in trouble! When I’m in a game that is completely immersive I don’t want that feeling to end, but that seldom ever does. Partly because it just can’t be done yet because system limitations or it would just take too long to develop.

So I was thinking if I could make my perfect fantasy gaming world, my cake and eat it too world. What would I add or combine from different games to make one freaking awesome game all together.

Combining Games

Now I was really thinking, once aging this is a very bad thing… I remember a long time ago I asked my nephew, what he wanted to be when he grew up?  He simply replied “a Jedi”. So let’s start here.

Elder Scrolls with a touch of Sci-Fi

Oblivion or Skyrim are a couple of my all-time favorite games, I thought how could these games be better? That brings me to what my nephew said. Let’s add some light sabers and blaster guns to it.

Ok, Ok, there are some purists out there saying this guy is crazy. To be honest I like the Elder Scrolls series the way they are, I was just making a point if you could have it anyway what would you want in your game.

An idea that works

I really like how most MMOPRG’s have a character progression tree, and you’re waiting for the “but” right? But, I think it would be much better if they took the progression tree from the Elder Scrolls, no levels and you have to use a skill to ever progress in that skill.

A lot of games just give you skill upgrades when you level up, that’s so wrong. You have to work a skill to get and upgrade always, just like real live.

I would like to see the Elder Scrolls progression in the battlefield series, I really think that would be cool.


So today I ask you, what games would you like to combine to make your perfect game?

    For me the exploration and world scope of Minecraft with the fun and silliness of Saints Row 3, the gun play from Max Payne 2 and a deep story experience of Mass Effect.

    Wow, that thought has blown my mind a little. Time for a lie down!

    That sounds pretty cool, good idea!

    If you can combine Minecraft and DayZ, it would be rather interesting.
    You start in a Apocalypse Earth, gathering resource while you hide from Zombies initially. You can than start creating a tiny forte to protect you from zombie attacks which happens regularly. By playing with friends, you can expand further, grow farms, raid city and towns, etc.
    You will wage war with other groups or ally yourself. If you die, you drop everything and respawn. You can specialize in different area, like infantry, medic, builder, scientist, etc and if you die, your progress resets, so you become valuable to allies, and a threat to enemies.

    How about this Minecraft for the unlimited world, DayZ for the zombie survival, Crysis for the graphics, and Skyrim for the player progression.

    Might be too complex for some people, but I could see some marathon length gaming sessions.

    I was thinking about the same thing recently… And decided that I would love BioWare and Bethesda to join together and create my perfect game. The open-world, exploration, and skill-trees of Skyrim combined with the story/companionship/dialogue-trees of Mass Effect. Let’s throw in some Minecraft for resources and building and -more- exploration.

    I’m fairly sure I’d be one happy little gamer.

    That would make very happy as well!

    Congrats on the new Blog BTW.
